Devo is an American New Wave group formed in Akron, Ohio in 1972. They are best known for their 1980 hit "Whip It", which made it to #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their style has been variously classified as punk, art rock and post-punk, but they are most often remembered for their late 1970s and early 1980s New Wave music which, along with others ushered in the synth pop sound of the 1980s.
Devo were also pioneers of the music video, creating many memorable clips that were popular in the early days of music television.Though Devo has not released a new album, officially, the band has recorded a number of songs for various films since their reunion.
